**Govindasvāmi** (or **Govindasvāmin**) (c. 800 – c. 860) was an Indian mathematical astronomer most famous for his *Bhasya*, a commentary on the *Mahābhāskarīya* of Bhāskara I, written around 830. The commentary contains many examples illustrating the use of a Sanskrit place-value system and the construction of a sine table.

His work "Govindakriti" was a sequel to Āryabhaṭīya and is lost. His works have been quoted extensively by Sankaranarayana (869 AD) and Udayadivakara (1073 AD) and by Nilakantha Somayaji.
